VOIVOD
ALBUM RE-ISSUE: “KILLING TECHONOLOGY”
RELEASE DATE: 28TH APRIL 2017
FIRST TIME ON VINYL FOR 30 YEARS
Voivod are pleased to announce the re-issue of their third album “Killing Machine” on 28th April, via BMG.

Voivod are a Canadian heavy metal band from Quebec that formed in 1983. They started out as a speed metal band, while adding a mix of progressive and thrash metal to create their own unique style. They were one of the first thrash bands from Canada to receive international acclaim. The band have released eleven studio albums and a number of EPs, live albums, demos and DVDs. The band is still touring and are set to release a new album in 2017.

The band’s third full album perfectly reinforces their image of a post-apocalyptic wasteland set against a thrashing-punk-speed-metal soundscape. Originally released on Noise Records in 1987, this definitive issue of Voivod's  “Killing Technology” is a must-have item for any fan of this unique and ground-breaking progressive metal band.

The 2CD/DVD set vividly captures the period surrounding this album and details the band's development as they strove to perfect their sound and become a band of international acclaim. Along with a previously unreleased complete show - the Spectrum '87 concert recorded Live in Montreal - the set also includes concerts performed by the band in both the US and Switzerland. The album has been re-mastered from the original tapes, pressed on high quality heavy-weight vinyl and the artwork has replicated the original release.
